Black Friday deals come in many shapes and sizes, but usually they involve discounts or special gadget bundles. Sony seems to swim against the current this year, letting Xperia Z3 users enjoy a few riveting movies for free.
Owners of the Z3 phone, as well as those with a Z3 Compact or Z3 Tablet Compact around qualify for the freebies, which can be redeemed until January 31 2015.
Only Z3 buyers located in the US, UK, France and Spain should look for the complimentary downloads in their Xperia Lounge apps. Also, as far as American Z3 variants are concerned, it appears you’ll be needing a carrier-locked handheld available from either T-Mobile or Verizon. Sorry, unlocked proprietors.
Technically, just three movies are offered for free, with no strings attached. It makes sense, after all the devices are called Z3. But many report getting no less than six titles pushed to their library.
That includes the 2014 blockbuster “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”, last year’s six-time Academy Award-nominated drama “Captain Phillips”, and 1984 cult classic “Ghost Busters”. Plus, 2013 animation “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2”, baseball biopic “Moneyball”, and hilarious buddy cop comedy “22 Jump Street”.
